Such a great poem about God’s mercy and His purpose!!
Midnight in a prison cell–
What would you expect to see?
Chained men, lying in the dirt
Another night of empty dreams
What would you hear? A leaky pipe,
A whisper, and a stifled cry
But then, a sound cuts through the dark–
A song of praise begins to rise
A hymn of love to God is sung
By men awaiting death at dawn
Their voices, filled with hope and cheer,
Enthrall the men–but somewhere near
A jailer slept, who happened to be
The prisoner God planned to set free.
(Based on Acts 16:25-34)
